Tomato and pepper puff pastry tart

Leave a comment


I made this beautiful tart on a sunny but still chilly spring evening when I was just in the mood for summery cooking. It was so easy to make and you simply must try this, the flavours are amazing. I know I’m not reinventing the wheel, these kinds of family puff pastry “pizzas” or tarts have been made in different variations by loads of different people. I just always think it’s good to be reminded of simple dinner ideas and flavour combos.

Simply mix 1 garlic and herb boursin soft cheese with half a packet of Philadelphia with peppers (one of their flavoured varieties). Thin with a dash of milk to smooth the mixture and make it spreadable. Pour and spread the cheese mix onto your puff pastry rectangle. Score along each side of the pastry rectangle to allow the crust to rise along the edges. Tear up a handful of basil leaves and sprinkle onto the cheese mixture. Top with sliced tomatoes and a cup full of frozen sliced peppers from a bag. I like to blitz the peppers in to microwave before adding to the tart. A quick twist of black pepper will season your veg nicely. Now drizzle the tart with some balsamic vinegar glaze and pop in the oven at about 200ºC for about 20-25 minutes. Do check the instructions on the pack and use this as a guide as each brand of ready made pastry might vary. Serve with a green salad and enjoy!
